SG's Serum Showdown

Facebook LogoTwitter Logo
In 2016, Into The Gloss published an article titled "Face Serum; The FAQs," in which they defined serums, explained how they're different from moisturizer, and recommended how and when to use them. Looking back, it's hard to believe that most of us didn't know what serums were. How adorable?! Back then it was all about moisturizer, but the thought of life without serums today is unthinkable.

Serums do it all; they absorb easily into your skin and they can treat skin issues ranging from dryness, excessive oil, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea. It might seem counter intuitive, but as we learned from last week's featured reviewer, serums and oils can even treat and prevent breakouts for people with oily skin.

The most important thing to remember when applying them is to not rub it in like you would a moisturizer. Drop a pea sized amount of product into your hands and them rub them together to activate it, then gently press and push it into your skin. Extra credit goes to those who then massage their faces with a jade roller or gua sha.

We don't want to play favorites, but too bad! Don't hate the player—hate the game. The following serums are the most reviewed on Supergreat:

1st Place: Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum
2nd place: Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum
3rd place: Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum

It looks like Drunk Elephant is well in the lead, but other top contenders include Farmacy Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum, Eunoia Hydrating Serum (made by this member of the SG community), and Sunday Riley's C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum.
